St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea and The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Washtenaw County will host a free peer-to-peer educational program for families, friends and caregivers of individuals diagnosed with a mental illness such as major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. The class will be led by trained peer mentors who also live with mental illness. This is not a support group, but a supportive, safe and confidential program.
This course teaches the basics about serious brain disorders and treatments, helps connect people to others who share a similar experience and teaches important skills and coping techniques for their difficult journey.
Class meets weekly and starts:
Date: Thursday, March 15, 2018 for 12 weeks.

Location: St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, 775 S. Main Street, Chelsea, MI
